AVG Technologies Announces 2,500,000 Share Repurchase Program





AMSTERDAM, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and optimization to 150 million active users, today announced that it has adopted a share repurchase program under which AVG intends to repurchase shares to cover its obligations to deliver shares under its employee stock options incentive and restricted share units plans. Under the repurchase program AVG may repurchase up to 2,500,000 ordinary shares. "Our significant cash flow from operations provides the flexibility to invest in our business, undertake acquisitions and initiate a share repurchase program", said John Little, AVG's Chief Financial Officer.



Details of the Share Repurchase Program

The share repurchase was authorised by AVG's shareholders on June 27, 2012 and approved by the Supervisory Board. Under the share repurchase program AVG may, between May 9, 2013 and November 9, 2014, repurchase from time to time in both open market and privately negotiated transactions up to 2,500,000 ordinary shares.

Under applicable law, the repurchase price will be no greater than the lower of (a) 110% of the highest price of the ordinary shares officially quoted on NYSE over the 30 banking days preceding the date the repurchase is effected and (b) the higher of the price of the last independent trade and the highest current independent bid on the NYSE at the time of repurchase. Any open market purchases will be executed with reference to the trading conditions of Rule 10b-18 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Article 5 of the Regulation No. 2273/2003 of the Commission of December 22, 2003 (EC Regulation), whereby the relevant daily volume will be determined on the basis of the average daily volume traded in April 2013 and will be fixed on that basis for the period of the share repurchase program.

The share repurchase plan does not require AVG to acquire any specific number of shares and may be terminated by AVG at any time without prior notice.
